One of the greatest perks of having a food site has got to be the fun packages that arrive on the doorstep. For a confessed shopaholic attempting self-restraint in the face of a recession, continuing to receive packages in the mail or getting a visit from Mr. UPS makes for a happy day.
Thanks to the wonderful folks from Pom Wonderful, we've been enjoying heart healthy pomegranate juice all week. While hubby has been making muscle building protein smoothies in the morning, I thought I'd take a different path and indulge myself with a little bit of booze and an adult cocktail. ...and I thought I was the responsible one.
In an another wonderful foodie package (a very, very late thanks to Elle and the wonderful people at Hola Fruta), I received about 5 cartons of the very best fruit sherbet I think I've ever had. EVER. It's delicious and healthy and smooth and creamy. Coming from an ice cream/frozen yogurt/sherbet aficionado, that means a lot.
In any case, I had the quite brilliant idea to combine rum, pomegranate sherbet, and POM juice to create a quite tasty pretty pink cocktail. I think these would be perfect for a bridal shower, bachelorette party, or any other occasion where pink drinks are more appropriate than not.
